A toolkit for neural sequence-to-sequence transduction
This is the documentation for Sockeye, a sequence-to-sequence framework for Neural Machine Translation based on Apache MXNet Incubating. It implements state-of-the-art encoder-decoder architectures, such as

With version 2.0, we have updated the usage of MXNet by moving to the Gluon API and adding support for several state-of-the-art features such as distributed training, low-precision training and decoding, as well as easier debugging of neural network architectures. In the context of this rewrite, we also trimmed down the large feature set of version 1.18.x to concentrate on the most important types of models and features, to provide a maintainable framework that is suitable for fast prototyping, research, and production. We welcome Pull Requests if you would like to help with adding back features when needed.
